To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of (1) the proposals of the Lead Not Leave campaign, in particular to move from debating terms for leaving the EU to terms for remaining in the EU, and (2) the potential benefits of the UK remaining in the EU on the basis of guarantees of constitutional and institutional reform of the EU.

The Government’s policy is to work with Parliament to deliver a deal that ensures we leave the European Union, as planned, on March 29th.

Revoking Article 50 would not only betray the vote of the British people in the 2016 referendum, but it would betray the mandates on which the majority of MP’s were elected into Parliament.

The British people gave a clear instruction to leave and we are delivering on that instruction.
